  • Surf?

Sometimes when it’s raining its the perfect chance to catch a wave without the usual crowds. Just make sure you check the conditions before you paddle out.

H.I.I.T. Pilates! June 12th

Yesterday afternoon we had the very energetic Yuka come in and take our students for a 45 minute High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) Pilates Class! 

IMG_3252

We had a great turn out of students come along to sweat it out!

It was very intense, from start to finish and by the end we were all exhausted. It really was a great work out. Has anyone else got sore muscles today??

We are lucky enough to have Yuka come back next Wednesday at 2pm to take another class, it will be a great warm up before we have our regular soccer match against BBELS at 3.30pm! I’m looking forward to it all ready 🙂
